And God Created Spurgeon...


I have held original sermon notes in my hands. I "broke" into the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London with another pastor. I am a few volumes away from a complete set of 63. I have Passmore and Alabster copies of the Sword and Trowel. I have read countless biographies. I thought I knew all things Spurgeon, So imagine my surprise when I found out that "lost sermons" had been

Book Review: Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted


Ron Citlau is a fellow pastor in the Reformed Church in America. And when it comes to addressing the biblical hope offered same-sex attracted individuals, he knows what he is talking about. Ron spent many years lost in the wilderness of same-sex attraction until God in his mercy called him, not only out of that lifestyle, but into marriage, family and full-time ministry. In his prior book,

Misinformation #1


The first message in our new series "Misinformation" questions at whether or not it is true that God will never give you more than you can handle. If God does give us more than we can handle on our own, what should we be doing with the burdens of life? MP3 File

Pearls of Greatest Price


The Pearl of Greatest Price is not what you think. This sermon on the famiilar parable corrects our misunderstandings and points us more fully to God's love for us. Preached August 28, at the Faith Reforemd Church in Midland Park, NJ. MP3 File

The Treasure Hunter


This message, part of our VBS kickoff, examines the Parable of the Hidden Treasure in Matthew 13:44. The treasure is not what most people think and when we realize what it really is - it can radically change how we see God, ourselves and our mission. MP3 File

A Review: "Tongue Pierced" by Nelson Searcy


"In our words are the power of life and death." With this premise, Nelson Searcy, begins a helpful look at the way we communicate with God, ourselves and with others. Rooted in the Words of Scripture, Searcy offers very practical ways to improve the way we use our words to create a deeper spiritual life, better relationships and a positive sense of self. After laying a biblical foundation on the

Review: "What Does the Bible Really Teach about Homosexuality?"


Homosexuality has been on the front-burner of the clash between the church and culture for some time now, but it is threatening to boil over as the church now fights on two fronts - without and within the church. In "What Does the Bible Really Teach about Homosexuality?" Kevin DeYoung has written a balanced and passionate defense of the biblical doctrine of sex and marriage. Beginning



Listen to the angel's song, all you who have a troubled heart. "I bring you good tidings of great joy!" Never let the thought cross your mind that Christ is angry with you! He did not come to condemn you. If you want to define Christ rightly, then pay heed to how the angel defines Him, namely, "A great joy!" -- Martin Luther



"We have tended to turn the Christian faith into a relationship through Christ with a God who is the divine vending machine in the sky, there to meet our every need. Unhappy? Unattractive? Unsuccessful? Unmarried? Unfulfilled? Come to Christ and He will give you everything you ask for. We forget God is not primarily in the business of meeting needs. And when we make Him out to be, we squeeze Him



The 19th century Scottish pastor and trainer of pastors, John Brown, wrote a letter to one of his students newly ordained over a small congregation and extended this word to him:"I know the vanity of your heart, and that you will feel mortified that your congregation is very small, in comparison with those of your brethren around you; but assure yourself on the word of an old man, that when you

"The Gods of the Copy-Book Headings" by Rudyard Kipling


AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race, I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place. Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall, And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all. We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn: But we



"If (when) someone shares a bit of gossip with you today, invite them to pray with you about the issue, right there on the spot." - Scotty Smith



"Our problem generally isn’t that we think the Bible is unimportant. It’s that we don’t do anything about it. For instance, if I offered you—a Christian—$500,000 to never touch the Bible again, you would probably refuse that deal. But think about that. You’ve just identified this as an asset worth over $500K. Is there any other ½ million dollar asset you treat so carelessly?" - J.D.

A Better Way: A Day in God's Courts


This sermon series looks at the "Better Way" to live from God's Word. In this message we look at why one day with God is better than the best day this world has to offer.

We Pledge...


While we are grateful to God for the blessing of our nation, as believers we recognize we own a greater allegiance to the kingdom of God. As followers of Christ what is the response to the price he paid for our spiritual freedom?

A Mosque in Our Midst


Midland Park is getting a mosque. This news has caused quite a stir in our little town. What should be our Christian response? Taking 2 Timothy 1:7 as a starting point we consider what it means that, "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love ans self-control." The goal is to encourage us to take the opportunity to do as Jesus said and "love our neighbor."

Random Quote from Charles Spurgeon


“We shall, as we ripen in grace, have greater sweetness towards our fellow Christians. Bitter-spirited Christians may know a great deal, but they are immature. Those who are quick to censure may be very acute in judgment, but they are as yet very immature in heart. He who grows in grace remembers that he is but dust, and he therefore does not expect his fellow Christians to be anything more.

Random Quote from A.W. Tozer


“...the cross of popular evangelicalism is not the cross of the New Testament. It is, rather, a new bright ornament upon the bosom of a self-assured and carnal Christianity whose hands are indeed the hands of Abel, but whose voice is the voice of Cain. The old cross slew men; the new cross entertains them. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed confidence in the

Why the PM Service Should Still Matter

A selection from The Dark Guest - The Valley of Vision


O my crucified but never wholly mortified sinfulness! O my life-long damage and daily shame! O my indwelling and besetting sins! O the tormenting slavery of a sinful heart! Destroy, O God, the dark guest within whose hidden presence makes my life a hell. Yet thou hast not left me here without grace; The cross still stands and meets my needs in the deepest straits of the soul.



O God, I know that I often do they work without thy power, and sin by my dead, heartless, blind service, my lack of inward light, love, delight, my mind, heart, tongue moving without thy help. I see sin in my heart in seeking the approbation of others; this is my vileness, to make men’s opinion my rule, whereas I should see what good I have done, and give thee glory, consider what sin I have

What Me Worry?


Worry: what is it and how do we deal with it?
